Tons of Pics Tuesday... {Come See!}

It's been too long, bloggy friends!  I've been busy watching "Breaking Bad" obsessively and just finished the series... I LOVED it!!!!!  Any other BB fans out there?  I'm looking for another good series to start now.  I've watched "Orange is the New Black" and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

So... I'm a little late to the party, but here are some pics of what we made our parents for Christmas.

This one is a pin my colleague found on Pinterest... not sure who to credit here, but THANKS to whoever came up with this CUTE CUTE project first!

We also made these ornaments out of cupcake wrappers... I LOVE how they turned out!!!  Super cheap and easy... just fold the cupcake wrapper in half and glue, then fold it in half again and glue.  Stack, glue, hot glue a popsicle stick on the back, hole punch, add pipe cleaner hanger!

So cute!!!

We also made cinnamon/applesauce ornaments, a reindeer thumbprint ornament, and a handprint tile... but I forgot to take pics of those!

One of my BFFs and I went to the last Lions home game in mid-December.  We had SO much fun!  We even made Lions cookies and took them to pass out to fans in Detroit!  You can totally tell which ones she made... she's a great artist!

I love this girl... we had so much fun!  I lost my voice from screaming too much!

Last... it's time for my FAVORITE writing unit... personal narratives!!!!!  We started this week and already have an anchor chart, additions to our Writer's Notebooks, and have read some amazing mentor texts by Patricia Polacco and Donald Crews!

I can't WAIT to dig deeper into this unit and see what my writers come up with!

Check out the Writer's Notebook pack for more info!

It's the new year!  I hope 2015's amazing for you all!


  1. I LOOOOOVE Breaking Bad! And Patricia Polacco is one of my favorite writing mentors. There's so much to work with in her books.

  2. We made those cupcake liner decorations too, but we didn't use popsicle sticks . . . I'll have to remember that idea for next year!

  3. Those cupcake wrapper tree ornaments are adorable. I only have white cupcake wrappers, but I am wondering if I can use that as an opportunity for my little one to do some watercolor painting next year. Definitely pinning that idea for next Christmas!
